API

   Events
       Change
           The notification is called when the text property is changed, either interactively or
           as a result of direct call.

   Properties
       alignment INTEGER
           One of the following "ta::" constants, defining the text alignment:

                   ta::Left
                   ta::Right
                   ta::Center

           Default value: "ta::Left"

       autoHeight BOOLEAN
           If 1, adjusts the height of the widget automatically when its font changes.

           Default value: 1

       autoSelect BOOLEAN
           If 1, all the text is selected when the widget becomes focused.

           Default value: 1

       autoTab BOOLEAN
           If 1, the keyboard "kb::Left" and "kb::Right" commands, if received when the cursor is
           at the beginning or at the end of text, and cannot be mover farther, not processed.
           The result of this is that the default handler moves focus to a neighbor widget, in a
           way as if the Tab key was pressed.

           Default value: 0

       borderWidth INTEGER
           Width of 3d-shade border around the widget.

           Default value: 2

       charOffset INTEGER
           Selects the position of the cursor in characters starting from the beginning of text.

       firstChar
           Selects the first visible character of text

       insertMode BOOLEAN
           Governs the typing mode - if 1, the typed text is inserted, if 0, the text overwrites
           the old text. When "insertMode" is 0, the cursor shape is thick and covers the whole
           character; when 1, it is of default width.

           Default toggle key: Insert

       maxLen INTEGER
           The maximal length of the text, that can be stored into text or typed by the user.

           Default value: 256

       passwordChar CHARACTER
           A character to be shown instead of the text letters when writeOnly property value is
           1.

           Default value: '*'

       readOnly BOOLEAN
           If 1, the text cannot be edited by the user.

           Default value: 0

       selection START, END
           Two integers, specifying the beginning and the end of the selected text.  A case with
           no selection is when START equals END.

       selStart INTEGER
           Selects the start of text selection.

       selEnd INTEGER
           Selects the end of text selection.

       textRef SCALAR_REF
           If not undef, contains reference to the scalar that holds the text of the input line.
           All changes to ::text property are reflected there.  The direct write access to the
           scalar is not recommended because it leaves internal structures inconsistent, and the
           only way to synchronize structures is to set-call either ::textRef or ::text after
           every such change.

           If undef, the internal text container is used.

           Default value: undef

       wordDelimiters STRING
           Contains string of character that are used for locating a word break.  Default STRING
           value consists of punctuation marks, space and tab characters, and "\xff" character.

       writeOnly BOOLEAN
           If 1, the input is not shown but mapped to passwordChar characters.  Useful for a
           password entry.

           Default value: 0
